Sounds to me like he made a whole lot of bad decisions. I wont be looking into his gun club any time soon. Confronting armed men over jewelry with a 5 shot revolver?! seriously? Glad he was not hurt, and no bystanders were hit.
"All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing."
Doesn't sound like he practiced what he preached. I mean, at a minimum, I assume he taught reloading skills?
Wow this guy sounds like a real piece of work. This is some stunt you would expect out of the mind of a 16-yr old kid fresh out of a viewing of Commando, not a "nationally recognized master". Pitiful.
Who knows...Maybe those men could drive on and run over a little kid speeding off or kill an officer in the process.

He's a blowhard. Master Instructor misses every shot...

Is this one of those "Talk the talk but couldn't walk the walk" cases?
I guess he's finally figured out that when bullets start coming at you, suddenly all the rules change.

5 round capacity against multiple threats? I bet he will start carrying a higher capacity semi-auto after this. Considering his line of work, he should have been carrying something with higher capacity anyway.
Master lever shooter, huh? Maybe with a semi auto. A lot of regular IDPA and IPSC shooters shoot semi-autos, but carry a pocket revolver. The poor little revolver usually doesn't get much range time at all.
I am a firm believer in practice with what you carry. For me, its a fullsize 1911 in the cooler weather, and a G26 in the warmer weather. I shoot both of them regularly.
Sometimes it's more helpful to be a good witness. I forgot where I heard that at,but I'm a firm beleiver in it.
Sounds like the robbery was over to me. It was more offense than defense at that point. Good thing he is a lousy shot or he might have ended up in jail for murder. He should have known better, especially as an instructor. Not that I want robbers on the street, but going after them himself was nuts. Cleaning up after the crime has already been committed is where police excel. Take a plate number and make a call.
Absolutely no justification for him injecting himself into this situation.
Clearly is the personification of the old axiom: "Those who can do, those who can't teach". Should would feel proud being a graduate of his school.
